Coriander seed is possibly the most important ingredient in Indian curries and dried roasted Coriander seeds or dhana dal are eaten as a snack. Coriander seeds are also an essential ingredient in tagines.
Coriander goes well with ham and pork, especially when orange is included. It enhances fish dishes and, with other spices, may form a delicious coating for spiced fish or chicken, rubbed into the scored flesh and grilled. Try frying a few seeds with sausages to add an unusual flavour. Coriander complements chili and is included in many chili recipes, such as harissa, the hot North African red pepper sauce. It may be added to cream or cottage cheese.
